Former Opposition Leader quotes singer Johnny Nash: Mia Mottley poses, “There are more questions than answers!” and Prime Minister Freundel Stuart must give answers NOW!

Former Opposition Leader Mia Amor Mottley posed a series of Open Questions for Prime Minister Freundel Stuart to answer immediately, in her exhortation to the audience at St Alban’s Primary, the St Michael North East MP implied more and more Barbadians are going to sleep every night, remaining none the wiser on a range of frightening issues.

Highlights of the entire presentation will be issued as an edited video via Youtube in the next 48 hours

At the branch meeting of the BLP’s branch of St. James North last night here are some of the questions she delivered in a Public method so as to encourage the 7th PM of Barbados to respond to the following urgent issues:-


1. Why did the Government let the Oversight Committee come to an end 1 year ago this week and leave Clico without any oversight over it’s management decisions? Will the PM indicate whether any payments were made to Clico in respect of Leroy Parris‘ gratuity that would have been banned if the Government Oversight Committee was still in place?

Please remember, all EFPA Policyholders & Investors, if you want to ask Oliver Jordan, the consultant appointed by Deloitte for CLICO Barbados' Judicial Management? His email is as follows... CLICOJUDICIALMANAGER.BB@ DELOITTE.COM

2. Why did the Government not act with alacrity in appointing a Judicial Manager?

3. Why is the Government not telling Clico and later now the Judicial Manager (who acts now as Manager like a receiver) that they have to take action to defend the Supreme Court Suit that Leroy Parris has brought against Clico for more than $10 million so that he is not given preferred status over the hundreds of Barbadians who are unsecured in trying to get their money back from the EFPA’s? Why is the Gov’t not stating publicly that Leroy Parris should be held accountable and should be countersued as the Central Bank of Trinidad has sued Duprey and Others in Clico Trinidad?

4. Why is his Government not telling the public of Barbaods and in particular the Clico EFPA Depositors that they are entitled under section 61 (3) of the Insurance Act to go and see the Report of the Judicial manager at the Registry of the Supreme Court or any other place the Supervisor of insurance designates?

5. Is the Prime Minister not aware that the government’s failure to act promptly as well as the report of his describing Mr Parris as “his pal” has left thousands of Barbadians without confidence in this matter?

6. When will a Forensic Audit be done of Clico to get to the bottom of the facts and to provide confidence that the Gov’t is defending the public interest?

Branch meeting of the BLP branch of St. James North at St. Albans last night

These questions must be answered by the Prime Minister to help allay the concerns of Barbadians who are deeply worried at this difficult time in our country’s development. His silence as has been referenced even in this year’s calypsos is now deafening and definitely NOT golden. {N.B.FULL VIDEO WITH HIGHLIGHTS TO BE ISSUED IN NEXT 48 HOURS}
